Of Little Ponies & Unicorns

outfit details – dress: Xhileration // peter pan collar necklace: M Style // my little pony necklace: Once Upon a Smorgasbord (I made it!) // glasses: derek cardigan (buy here)

This is something that I think of almost everyday and it constantly annoys me because I can never think of a good answer for it: If I were a My Little Pony, what would my cutie mark be? No, I’m serious. I think about this a lot. Cutie marks are like tattoos, y’know? Once you have it it’s there FOREVER. I already know that I will eventually get a tattoo of Rory, a carousel horse, and the Gallifreyan symbol for ‘friend,’ but if I were a MLP I wouldn’t want a dog on the side of my ass! I used to think I’d have chocolate chip cookies on the side of my flank (because I love cookies, duh), and later on I thought maybe a book + quill (for my love of reading and writing), and now I’m like maybe a laptop (for my love of the internet?)… or a pile of Swarovski crystals (because I love to make necklaces)? I DON’T KNOW. And let’s not even talk about what color combination I would be. UGH.

It’s normal for a woman that just turned 27 last Saturday to think of things like this, right? o,0

So anywho — why do I keep talking about ponies? Um, because they’re awesome. Duh. And I also started experimenting with my jewelry making skills by using toys as pendents! Specifically My Little Pony toys. I know this isn’t an original idea, but I wasn’t too crazy about some of the ones I’ve seen made, so I wanted to put my own spin on it. I approach my jewelry making the same way I dress myself — how can I incorporate geeky/childish elements without looking like a 12-year-old, but still age appropriate? I think I succeeded in making them simple, yet fun, statement necklaces that anyone anypony can wear! 🙂

After making the Rarity necklace (pictured above) I decided to keep it because… well, she’s my favorite! She’s a unicorn with a purple mane who loves fashion. How could she not be my favorite?

All the ones pictured above are currently listed on Once Upon a Smorgasbord 😉

I’ve been cranking out necklace after necklace for the past two weeks and I’m really excited about them! I have all sorts of things planned for my Etsy store this year and these MLP necklaces are just one of those things. Hope you guys like them!

Cheers,
Nina

  1. Cute! I’m not a huge Pony fan, but I probably would be if I gave it a chance. 😀

    • Thanks, Mandy! I was *super* hesitant to give the reboot a chance, but it’s actually really well written and funny. Annnd there’s a pony that’s supposed to look like the Doctor! 😀

    Soooo cute xx

  3. Hi Nina! Just stumbled over to your blog via Mandy’s GoTW feature on you! You definitely have a new follower in me!

    I just wanted to comment that I have NO idea what my cutie mark would be either. Ever since I started watching MLP:FiM last year, I’ve been thinking about it, and I just have too many broad interests that no one image on my flank would seem to define me…guess I’m a lifelong Cutie Mark Crusader.

    Anywho, nice to “meet” you! Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    • Yay! I’m glad you found me via Mandy 😀 It’s also nice to hear that I’m not the only grown woman who thinks about what their cutie mark would be! Cutie Mark Crusaders for life!! I wonder if there’s a Facebook group for that…?

      Nice “meeting” you too, Mariel! Hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
